Apparently the recreation passport will start October 1st.When you renew your license plates you can check a yes box and you are charged an additional ten bucks. This entitles you to entrance to all state parks and all boat launches controlled by DNR for no additional charge. This will not cover overnight camping fees.. Looks like a good deal.

Check with the Secretary of State office and see if something can be done for you.. I am sure there is a way around it. I can't imagine the governor is willing to forgo an extra 10 bucks for less than a month. It won't hurt to try.

You give up too easily.

Alex : reread your comment. It was your attitude that gave you away.

In the meantime; http://www.michigan.gov/recreationpassport
should have all the info you need to know. I was further told that after your renewal you can go to any state park and pay the ten dollars, instead of going back to the SOS office and standing in line again.

You just love to bait me, don't you. Remember, it was you who wrote "Apparently the recreation passport will start October 1st.When you renew your license plates you can check a yes box and you are charged an additional ten bucks." You did not say anything about the option of going to a state park in that previous message.

Once I go to the SoS office I will be able to find out about any option of going to a State Park and paying them. I have gone to the web site you mention and so far have not found out about being able to pay $10. BTW, what will that $10 get me or anyone else that pays it? Is there a sticker to go on the window?

The lady in Lansing told me about paying at the state park. However, when you pull up the web site, in the left margin, there are a number of entries that will provide answers to any questions you might have. e.g. Click on frequently answered Recreation passport questions, it mentions a sticker to put on your plate to indicate that you have paid the fee. After October 1st there will no more daily fees for park entrance, but everybody without a current yearly permit (2010) will have to pay the ten dollars, which should be good until you renew your plate. It mentions that a few things will have to be worked out as we go along. It also answers questions re. funding.


I don't try to bait you. I do enjoy your DRY sense of humor and look forward to its challange. cheers Bob

I went to the SoS today and renewed my plate. While there I asked about the Passport and was told that they will go on sale on the 1st of October and not before. I asked how I can get onboard with that program. I was told that all that anyone has to do is come back on or after the 1st and pick up a passport thing for $10. The passport will only be available through the SoS and not at any state park according to the woman who handled my visit at the office on Dequindre just north of 11 Mile Rd.

According to the web site, You will be able to pay the ten bucks when entering the state park of your choice after October 1st (2010). However, if you wish you may pay it as a follow up visit to the SOS, where you will get your sticker good for one year from date of issue.

My birthday was in July. I renewed my plate in April to have the pass. Not a problem.

They would not have stopped you from entering a ramp or state park until your plates had expired, though. You were grandfathered in until July.

When the truck renewal form came at the end of August we made out the check and dropped it back in the mail the next morning. Eight days later I was putting the new sticker with the "P" on it on the plate.
